    Hi there fellow weight watchers!

    I hope everyone's doing ok with their diets.

    I'm calling out to anyone who ever bakes (because I do not - in fact, I never have! :eek: )

    It's my little girls 1st birthday in June and I would really love to bake her a birthday cake. I know it's silly, she's only 1 so it's not as if she'll even know I did it, but I would still like to have a go - plus I thought it would be nice to have one for the photos (I want her to look back at her birthday pics and think I was a good home cooking only type mum, hehe).

    So, I have NEVER baked a cake in my entire life, and I wondered if anyone has any tasty low points recipes? I could follow a standard recipe from a book I suppose, but I'm not even sure if it would work if I substituted the sugar for sweetener, or even the lower cal sugar...would that just ruin the taste?

    Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. I need to know how to make the cake AND how to make the 'butter icing' to decorate it with. ANY recipes will be gratefully received, lower point recipes would be a real bonus.

    Thanks people! ;)

    These little buns are so pretty decorated with fresh flowers.




    Ingredients

    • 110 g caster sugar, (4oz)
    • 110 g polyunsaturated margarine, (4oz)
    • 2 medium egg(s), beaten
    • 110 g self raising flour, (4oz)
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    • 1 portion egg white, (to decorate + 12 tiny flowers)
    • 25 g caster sugar, (1oz) (to decorate)
    • 25 g icing sugar, (1oz) (to decorate)
    Instructions

    • Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 5 / 190°C / 375°F. Line a 12-hole patty tin with paper bun cases.
    • Put the sugar, margarine, eggs, flour, salt and vanilla into a large mixing bowl. Beat vigorously with a wooden spoon for 1 minute. Spoon into the bun cases.
    • Bake for 18 - 20 minutes until risen and firm. Remove from the tin and cool completely.
    • To make the crystallised flowers, paint the flower petals with lightly beaten egg white and dip into caster sugar. Leave to dry.
    • Mix the icing sugar with a little water to make a smooth glacé icing and spread on to the buns. Decorate with the flowers, but do not eat them.

      Cook’s tips: Add 1-2 drops of food colouring to the icing, if you wish
